"Ringer" review by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays, 9/8c on The CW

Every year, I choose one new show to watch. Otherwise, if I tried to watch all of the new ones, I wouldn't have time for anything else! So this year it's "Ringer", mostly because of Sarah Michelle Gellar starring in it. She was great on both "All My Children" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", and she's excellent in this show as well.

She plays twin sisters. One is a single former drug addict, Bridget; and the other is a married rich woman named Siobhan. Gellar plays both roles, and she does a very good job. Bridget witnessed a murder, so she is being watched before she testifies, but she escapes to see her sister. They go out on a boat together, and Siobhan disappears, so Bridget thinks she died. Since she's on the run anyway, she takes Siobhan's place.

The plot sounds a bit like the new show "The Lying Game", where there are two twin sisters, and one takes the other's place when she disappears (the show, too, stars a former soap opera star). However, that's pretty much where the similarities end. I think "Lying Game" is a little better, but it's hard to say after just one episode of each show.

It is hard to believe that someone can pretend to be another person, twin or not, especially when she doesn't know the woman's husband or friends. It does seem like just about everyone in the show has a lot of secrets, though, which may be fun to discover. I will keep watching and see how it goes. I hope it gets even better. It's not that it's bad, it just could be a lot more exciting.  Watch it and judge for yourself!
